[Chimera-users] Open model from pdb with designated model id?

Hi all,

I would like to write an alias to load a pdb and the associated 2fo-fc and fo-fc maps with a single command (and adjust the contours and appearance of the maps and model).

To do this, I need to be able to open the models with specific output ids, so I can issue commands to alter their appearance later in the alias.

Looking at the documentation (http://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/current/docs/UsersGuide/midas/open.html <http://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/current/docs/UsersGuide/midas/open.html>), it seems like this should be possible, but when I give an output model id it seems that chimera is ignoring it and still choosing the lowest available id. 

I have tried the following commands, “open 1bl8 100”, “open 1bl8 #100”, “open 1bl8 model-id:100” but they all either fail or load 1bl8 with model id 1.

Am I missing something about the syntax here? Or is there another flag for the output model id?
